    Suspect Taken into Custody in Isla Vista After Hours Long Stand-off

    Sheriff’s deputies have taken a suspect into custody after an over 3-hour stand-off. On Thursday, August 18, 2022, at approximately 11:12 a.m., deputies responded to an apartment complex in the 700 block of Camino Pescadero for an assault with a knife that had just occurred. When deputies arrived, they learned that the suspect, 41-year-old Brandon Schaik of Isla Vista, lunged towards the victim with a knife before retreating into his apartment on the second floor of the complex. The victim was not injured.

    Deputies ordered Schaik to exit the residence, but he refused to comply and at one point, yelled threats at the deputies with the knife in his hand. Additional units from UC Santa Barbara Police as well as the Sheriff’s Special Enforcement Team, Sheriff’s Crisis Negotiation Team, and K9 units responded to the area to assist. Residents in the immediate area were asked to temporarily evacuate or remain inside their homes.

    For over three hours, deputies made continual attempts to de-escalate Schaik and convince him to surrender. Schaik eventually came out of the front door and attempted to walk away from deputies. K9 Zeke was deployed and immediately apprehended the suspect, who was then taken into custody by deputies without further incident at 2:16 p.m.

    Schaik was transported to an area hospital for treatment of injuries sustained during the K9 apprehension. He will be booked at the Main Jail for charges including assault with a deadly weapon (felony), assault on a peace officer (felony), resisting an executive officer (felony), and criminal threats (felony).
